Those are not compatible speakers for this unit. The Denon receiver does not have any speaker outputs for that type of speaker.
The Denon speaker outputs are full range outputs. Your speakers are not designed for that, they need an amplifier that has seperate outputs for the highs and lows.
By using these speakers you will probably damage them and they will not sound very good as well. The tweeters will end up fried and it is also likely that if one of the speakers goes bad, it will blow one of the channels in the amplifier.
If you really want to do it anyways, and don't say I didn't warn you, you could connect them using the "A" and "B" speaker outputs. Connect the woofers on one set, lets say "A", and the tweeters on the other, lets say "B". Right channel "A" would be the woofer and right channel "B" would be the tweeter for one speaker.
When listening to the unit you would need to engage both the "A" and "B" speaker to hear anything from both speakers, there are buttons on the display for the speakers marked "A" and "B" and in the display you would see little icons that light up when the speakers are engaged.
I can not stress it to you enough that this is not a good idea to use these speakers with this type of receiver. Do this at your own risk and be prepared to pay about $150 to $200 for the repair bill after the amp blows a channel.

SOURCE: Denon AVR-3802 Problem
Check that your speaker cables are not touching each other at the amp end and also at the speakers as this will cause the amp to shut down.
hope this helps.

I had the same problem. Unfortunately Denon no longer mfgs. the remote for this receiver,
their solution is to offer a remote for a "similar" model. Problem is it doesn't work on all the
functions for the AVR-3802. My solution was to purchase an aftermarket universal remote
(Logitec Harmony 550 in my case}. The cost was a little less (approx. $90) vs. the price
quoted by Denon (somewhere around $120), and it works on all the functions.
I don't know if a budget priced remote (All-in-one, etc.) would be able to do th same.
There are several different programmable remotes on the market that should do the trick,
Logitec just happens to be one of them.
